[wtp-dev] RE: triage, fix, and approval
process for one week, and remainder of 1.5
Thanks, David. I’ve updated the Callisto
project site  with the newly revised process.
Also, note that the PMC requested a “bit freeze”
deadline of 6/14 to enable cooldown in advance of the Callisto-wide bit freeze.
That means that only 3 weeks remain for 1.5 work.
During the 5/31 – 6/14 phase of PMC approval,
we’ll add new calls (as frequently as daily if required) to ensure that
defects are not stalled on PMC approval during the endgame and to provide
component leads with an interactive forum for discussing them. If there are no
pending defects in the queue or they are receiving rapid PMC votes, then
we’ll continue with the former approach of asynchronous/offline approval.

Subject: triage, fix, and approval process for one week, and
remainder of 1.5
Tim Wagner is/will be sending out a more official process as this was discussed
and decided at today's PMC meeting, but, I think he had to get on a plane
before he could type them up,
so here's a semi-official version for the remainder of this week. We will, btw,
also re-discuss the process for the remaining 1.5 time at Thursday's status
call. I'm just sending this out now,
as we haven't communicated this yet and some folks appear to be waiting for
approval (as they should, under the old rules)
... so, please keep posting "bugs being fixed" to mailing list ...
but no need to wait to release to build (until 31st, that is).
now-5/31 (RC4) – component lead check-in approval and “post
hoc” PMC member review
which means component lead can approve for release and build, but lists of
defects for which fixes provided should
still be published to wtp-dev list. This is partially to make it easier for PMC
"post hoc" review (and PMC members make
chat with component leads if something seems inappropriate) and its also to
help keep adopters and other Callisto projects
aware of changes that could theoretically affect them.
Then, for the following two weeks, I think it was, we'll go back to fuller PMC
approval, but with some ideas to ensure doesn't
slow down important fixes.
I'd suggest component leads continue to triage bugs well so some idea of
proposed defects to address in 1.5 is well understood.
Remember, we do not have much room to "slip dates" due to Callisto
agreements, so it will be better to have a
well understood list of limitations or bugs, rather than try to fix tons of
stuff right up to the last minute, which could result in
accidental regressions that are worse than the bugs to be addressed. _______________________________________________
